The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine recognized as inadmissible and blamable the behaviour of Party of Regions’ deputy Oleh Kalashnykov as regards the conflict with journalists of STB TV channel.

374 out of 442 registered deputies voted for the corresponding resolution.

The parliament also admitted that the incident between STB journalists and Kalashnykov can be considered as professional journalists’ activity obstruction.

The Verkhovna Rada called the General Office of Public Prosecutor to assist Kyiv prosecutor’s office in investigation of this case.

As a reminder, On July 12, 2006 a group of deputies from Party of Regions, including Kalashnikov, hampered the work of STB TV group. They took off a cassette by force and beat journalists.

July 14 Kyiv prosecutor’s office brought a criminal action on fact of professional journalists’ activity obstruction.
